Pours a deep amber with a dense layer of soft, off white head that has decent retention. The nose is sweet with notes of coffee and toffee. The flavor is sweet with heavy caramel notes. There are some underlying flavors as well; ripe fruit, toffee. The mouthfeel is medium bodied though a little crisp.

This isn't a bad beer. It's enjoyable and drinkable, but ultimately, forgettable. If I were looking for a cheap beer on the shelves this could work its way into the conversation.

Decent head qith no lacing to follow. Small hints, and i mean small of caramel. Not much going on in the smell. Decent amount of carbonation which makes this beer refreshing and not really a lip smacker. Caramel and a touch of biscuit quickly hit the palate before disappearing completelt. Very thin bodied. Imo it is a poor job by michelob for a bock.. but i will always have a place in my heart for this beer since it introduced me to a slight different style of beer during my bud light days.
